Ever since I moved to the USA, I have been annoyed with people who don’t pronounce certain words correctly. Here is my running list. Feel free to add. Here’s some more: http://www.alphadictionary.com/articles/mispronounced_words.html
“I would like a shot of X-Presso, please.” — It’s actually Espresso. See, no X.
“Mommy, would you pwease make me a pweenutbutter Sammich?” — This is not even close to Sandwich. And I don’t care if it’s some Southern slang, I could not find it in the Oxford dictionary.
“I’m playing Badmitten because tennis balls scare me.” — Dang that mitten is a bad one. Umm, no. Its Badminton.
“I need to Axe you a question.” — Ask!!! If I had an axe for every time someone confuses a word made of 3 whole letters…
“In Canadia, people live in igloos.” — There is no ‘i’ in Canada. Ask me how I am pretty darn sure about this fact.
“It’s none of your damn bidness, man!” — Business. We aren’t bidding here.
“Dubya is a dumb ass.” — ‘W’ is actually pronounced ‘double U’. Shocking, I know.
I will admit something…I didn’t know that Klu Klux Klan is actually Ku Klux Klan. I’ll be sure to evangelize that one around.
